Loved the atmosphere, the wait staff, and the food. The food was a good value for the price. We stopped in on a whim and found it to be very pleasant. This would be worth your time if you like good barbeque.

Love Country's BBQ for some southern hospitality! I always get the chopped beef, this time I had a sandwich and fries. Love that there are so many choices of "sides". On this visit, the waitress was not so attentive. After asking 3 times for lemons for water, she finally brought them quite awhile later. I was disappointed though, that they... More

Country's Barbecue looks and feels the part of a great southern barbecue joint. Nice laid back environment with live music. Staff was exceptionally friendly and although busy, were courteous and in too of things. The prices were fine too. What was just ok and the reason for our visit was the food. The chopped pork had a nice flavor but... More

If you have been to Columbus you know Country's BBQ. Great BBQ and one of the best in two. The price point is the same of many other place, but this is without a doubt the most legendary BBQ in the area. Try it!

The kitchen is "open" so gluten free is hard to accommodate. The ribs were superb but I don't recommend going there if you are extremely sensitive to gluten. The waitress was kind and understanding. We got food in and food out,and split the bill. She never got confused. Our order was perfect.

Service was great, even visiting at 3pm so after lunch but dinner rush on Thursday. Good portion sizes but served barely warm. I had the Conglomeration Pla t e. Neither of the two ribs were very meaty but they were moist. The beef and pork were dry and really needed one of the three BBQ sauces. Loved the side orders,... More

We were looking forward to a good barbecue dinner with our soldier who just graduated. We all ordered something different so we could try each others food. Everything was tasty and well cooked. A little disappointed in the ribs as they were not as tender as I thought they would be. Coleslaw was different but good. Brisket sandwich was the... More

It is average at best. The place is shabby, and gives an impression of less than clean. I ordered the Conglomerate platter which included beef, pork, and ribs. The food arrived cold, dry, and not much taste to it. The side of beans was too sweet (substitute for desert?) and the side of fried green tomatoes were cut too thick... More

When we lived in Columbus,GA we used to eat bbq at this same Country's Restaurant. We moved to NC where bbq is good but not nearly as good as Country's from Columbus, GA!! I was so happy to have ordered their yummy pork bbq platter and it was as tasty as ever! Order the chopped pork, you won't be disappointed!... More

I have been eating here on a regular basis since childhood. Best food, best service! Barbecue eggrolls are a must-try!
